    Just so you know, I've been back to this post several times, day dreamed, sorted through scraps, day dreamed somemore, and got my ideas flowing. I really appreciate all of the links you provided too. THanx!

    Your very welcome, SaraSewing! Hope you are totally inspired and we can't wait to see it! Also, at posts #114 and #115, I included some tips that may be of help when choosing colors. Busy fabrics work great for the flower centers and fabrics that appear to look solid from a distance really vibrate the quilt best. Just put those opposite colors next to each other and you'll have a vibrantly exciting and colorful quilt!

    Also, the one done in Batiks, Junk to Gems, is a good consideration too! And it doesn't have to be done with square- in-a-square centers. So happy you are inspired and returning to this post to be reinspired again and again! It's what makes creative juices flow!! Happy quilting to you! n2

    I think that is Aunt Suky's Choice. I made one for my MIL and FIL for their 50th anniversary. I pieced mine all by hand and had it hand dquilted. That was before there was a longarmer around every corner.

    Thanks alot for the instructions
    This is a perfect use for all the squares I have left from my Jewel Box. They are all gem-coloured solids or reads-solid, so it won't be a flower quilt.

    I'm thinking of controlling the diagonal squares - making them all white - like in Burgoyne Surrounded

    This is a great scrap quilt for using those tons of leftover squares we all have and I just love your idea of simulating a Burgoyne Surrounded -- wow! That will look fantastic! The versatility of this block is just amazing of what can be done with it! We look forward to your post! Your very welcome!

    p.s. thanks, everyone, for your compliments and your welcome for the tut!

    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Do you have an contact for the WWP? A post in Main is asking for a place to send UFOs. I couldn't find an address by Googling it, nor could I put a link to your pthread in my post to her. Gr-r-r-r. Computers.

    Yes, here is a good one:

    Thank You Quilters
    P.O. Box 74
    Cedar Park, TX 78630-0764

    Here is their link to read the specifics under 'Criteria':

    http://www.thankyouquilters.org/indexaaaa.html

    (you just might want to go to http://www.thankyouquilters.org as the other link I just tried didn't work. Then click on 'quilt criteria' at the top of page to get the specifics.

    http://www.operationwearehere.com/Wo...rySupport.html ***(this one is the best to select the project you want to support)*** This quilt I did went to their Landstuhl Hospital Care Project.org in Landstuhl, Germany, but there are other projects as listed in the operationwearehere website you can choose from. Just click on the URL and you'll get an address.

    http://www.quilting-tidbits.com/quilts-of-valor.html

    http://www.flagsacrossthenation.org/...-for-recovery/

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...rs-t39767.html


    As you'll notice in the operation we are here site, they take crocheted and knitted items too! Also, some of the projects want red, white and blue only and other projects request any color but NO glitter fabric as it may cause flashbacks for the soldiers. Most request a minimum size quilt of 50x66, but you can read about the specifics at each one. They love getting the blocks because there are ladies who will sew them together.

    The Thank You Quilters site have Bernina Sew-Ins where the ladies meet to work together on making and finishing the quilts.

    It was hard to find just one address - it's impossible as WWP have many different projects ongoing all year long!!

    I hope this helps! I'll provide a link of this page in the Main section for that quilter you mentioned. n2


    p.s. My quilt was shipped to a store in a mall they rented space in to work on the quilts in Maryland. I can't find that address lol. or remember the city in Md.
